Customer Product Reviews
Optimate Lithlum Charger
Very good charger. Feel happy to leave the charger to look after the bike. Have tried others but if your are switch to a lighter better battery this is the one to use. Very good quality, along with better leads.
Tecmate Lithium Battery Optimiser
I recently upgraded my standard KTM battery to a lithium and was looking for a suitable method of looking after my investment. After extensive research I opted for this Tecmate product. It's well made and simple to operate, a key feature for me was the remote connector that comes with the unit. Great product and first rate service from sportsbike shop as usual. Highly recommend this product.
TecMate OptiMate Lithium 0.8A
I own an optimate 4 but recently bought a lithium battery for my 1250 bandit. The battery is so light! Unfortunately the charger I had will not charge lithium batteries so I got this one. I have only given 4 stars as I've only used it once, but with these cold mornings of late I'm sure I will be using it more!. It's a well made quality charger and does the job required. The cheapest price I could find was from Sportsbikeshop, Excellent fast delivery as always, I would certainly recommend.
Good price and great service.
Have relied on OptiMate's chargers for years. Excellent products and I think this one for my new Africa Twin will be just the job. It arrived very promptly ( a day early!) so I am impressed all round. Thank you
Top Tec Mate!
A really useful charger if you have a lithium Ion battery on your bike. Charges just as it says on the box. Easy to connect whether your battery is on or off the bike. Well made with secure terminals and connectors. Will look after your Lithium battery particularly through winter. Usual brilliant service from the guys at SBS. A bargain at the price. Recommended.
Lithium batteries are a bit of a pain in cold weather with the full cranking power only available when warm. So in winter to warm the battery you either leave the lights and ignition on to discharge or crank it over lots of times to get the full crank power to start. This means a fully charged battery is an absolute must. The optimate is the only charger to fully recover flat lithium's and can be left permanently connected. Plenty of 240v power cable lead and charging lead is great negating the need for extensions leads for my application unlike oxford unit that has short 240v lead and doesn't recover flat batteries.
Perfect lithium charger
It's an OptMate, what more can you ask for? If you have a lithium battery on your bike this is perfect, it's literally just plug in and walk away. Top up charge or long term trickle charge, even recovering some dead battery situation.
